MUSCATINE COUNTY, Iowa (KWQC) – R. J. Strong of Port Louisa, Iowa was spooked by what he saw a week ago Monday, June 13, at 2 a.m.
Strong posted on Facebook afterward that he was traveling near Ogilvie and F avenues in Muscatine County when he saw “some weirdo walking down the paved road in a black trench coat!!!!” Several others on social media have reported similar sightings in recent weeks.
According to the reports, the individuals have been seen standing beside roadways and sometimes stepping into roadways as motorists are passing at locations across Muscatine County, in southeastern Iowa. “My son has experienced this and it’s no joke,” posted Beatrice Wilson Strong. “It was really a frightening experience to him.” “It’s happened to a few friends of mine out on [Highway] 22,” posted Cassie Pameticky.
The Muscatine County Sheriff’s Office has taken notice, posting Monday on its Facebook page, “We have had several reports of ‘men dressed in black’ entering the roadway in rural Muscatine County.”
Several people have told KWQC that these same individuals have been spotted walking across homeowners’ yards, although the MCSO Facebook post does not mention sightings on private property.
The MCSO is now asking anyone who encounters the individuals to “call 911 immediately.” The sheriff’s Facebook post has generated several jokes and speculation that harmless pranksters are behind the sightings.
However, the MCSO says on its Facebook page, “We do take this seriously” and investigators are “hoping the public can assist.”

My mother who works in a rural area here in Canada had a strange encounter recently with a man in a black trench coat who randomly walked into her office.
He asked her some odd questions about buying some property in a town that's known as a ghost town around here, and told her to call a social worker who he works with, to what end I don't know. The name of the social worker sounds completely made up but my mother was able to get a hold of this person after some trying.
Here's where it gets stranger..so my mother couldnt get a hold of this person right away so he leaves only to come back an hour later with a bullet proof vest on (very uncommon site here in Canada, especially a rural area).
He speaks to his social worker for a bit upon arriving back and this time he says he needs information about jobs in the conservation areas nearby, and after being told there are no jobs available, angrily leaves and heads to the nearest conservation area.
Shortly after this, a park ranger came running to her office to make sure everyone is ok; apparently they apprehended him and sent him to a psych hospital.
A few days later he must have been released because he has been calling the office where my mom works which has caused her quite a bit of distress (unfortunately she doesn't have any weapons to protect herself with).
So after she told me the story, she gave me his name, and after some simple preliminary investigations things got even stranger.
The guy is part of an international satanic cult, he is a whit supremacist, and has references to having worked with the government on projects involving our national space program and national defense under the guise of a contractor.
As I dig deeper, I almost can't believe how conspiratorial this whole thing might be, and I'm half hoping I haven't stumbled on something I really shouldn't have.
I will continue my investigation..as most you know you can't hide anything these days, and I personally can track anyone if I really want to which I learned from my previous work experience.
Also he changed his name in the last two years which I find curious as well.
